Indeed Zendejas, who has coached seven All-State kickers, was determined to coach the talented young lady into stardom. As soon as he met Becca, he knew she had what it took. “I’m strong-willed; trust me,” she told him, recalling the conversation to Bleacher Report. “This is something I’m going to stick with.” And indeed during her first training session, Becca connected on an impressive eighty percent of her tries.
Shortly afterward Becca approached the Queen Creek High athletic director, Paul Reynolds, and told him she wanted to play for the junior varsity team. She quickly became one of their star players. Other girls who were interested in football would point her out, approach her, and ask for autographs and pictures. Just as she had once idolized Garrett, Becca was now finding herself an idol to many.
